Wait...I Can Race from My Treadmill?!

ohmygosh. I just found the BEST website!! I had to share it with you!! is a virtual running site where you can sign up for virtual races, then do them on your own schedule and course! The best part is, you get all the benefits of an actual in-person race (minus the shirt)! 

They even have awesome race medals that are specific to each race you can do! What's better than getting a medal for a race that's convenient to you?! You don't even have to pay travel and hotel fees!!

You can sign up for a variety of races at 4 different distances (5k, 10k, Half Marathon, Full Marathon) and you can do them whenever you want and wherever you want!

Here's their current race series.

This means that I can run a race from the comfort of my treadmill at the gym! I don't have to get out in the hot Texas heat to earn my race medal!

I know it seems too good to be true, but it's really not! You can even do a race over the span of multiple days! So if it's always been your goal to run a half marathon, you can earn a half marathon medal by running over the course of a month!

And the icing on top is that they raise money for a different charity each month, so your money goes towards a great cause!

Seriously, check them out and join me for a virtual race! Now I just need to decide which race I want to run...

Let's talk it over!
- Have you ever done a virtual race?
- Which of JostRunning's races are you interested in?
     - I'm still debating which race I'm doing... so many choices!!


  1. I've thought, and blogged, about this, too! Then I totally forgot about it and got distracted by my 50 States calendar. My Grandmother lost her life to ALS, so that might be the race for me...

    1. I'm so sorry to hear that! I think that would be a great race to do in her memory!

  2. I haven't done one and the first I heard about them was through JostRunning - such a cool concept!

    1. Yes! It is super awesome! You should definitely race and let me know how it goes!

  3. That looks like a great way to race!

    Also, I nominated you for a Liebster award! Check out my blog for the details! :)

    1. Oh my goodness! It's an honor just to be nominated! :) Thanks! I'll answer your questions soon!
